We provide impartial advice to help you assess your opportunities and barriers to growth, and we offer a grant towards the cost of bringing in specialist expertise for eligible projects. The objectives of the fund are to drive job creation, the introduction and launch of new products and to improve productivity.
Our advisors know the manufacturing and engineering sector; they’ll work with you to understand your growth ambitions, walk your site and get to grips with any challenges you face. They’ll help to scope out a project where input from a specialist consultant could unlock your growth ambitions, and they’ll help you find the right provider to work with.
For eligible projects, we’ll provide a grant for 30% of the costs. We’re looking to support relatively significant projects with a value of around £10k which would attract a grant of £3k. Eligible projects include those that lead to job creation, help to develop new products or services and bring them to market, plus drive up productivity.
Businesses benefitting from the 30% grant will need to fund 70% of the consultancy project themselves.
